Traditional Arts Apprenticeships

Deadline: July 9, 2021
(for projects between November 1, 2021 - September 30, 2022)

Grant Coordinator: Kayla Schweitzer
(603) 271-0795

The Traditional Arts Apprenticeship grants help communities preserve their cultural heritage through the learning and passing on of traditional arts and folklife – including crafts, music, dance, and foodways - so that future generations can continue to benefit from them. Apprenticeship grants fund a master traditional artist to teach a qualified apprentice in one-to-one sessions over a period of six to ten months. Traditional arts and folklife are passed down from one generation to the next within communities through observation, conversation, imitation and practice. They represent a sense of beauty, skills, knowledge and community values refined over generations and are an important part of our living cultural heritage.
